A Study of the Transfer Policies of Four-Year Agricultural Colleges in State Universities Regarding Credit in Agricultural Courses Taken in Two-Year Post-Secondary Institutions.
Jansen, U. H.
In the spring of 1970, questionnaires were sent to Deans of Resident Instruction in each of 22 4-year colleges and universities in the U.S., to assess policies on accepting transfer credit in 2-year college agricultural courses by 4-year colleges and universities. It was found that the state universities will generally accept credit, with a few restrictions, in agricultural courses earned in junior and community colleges, but will not accept credit from area vocational or technical schools. Credit in agricultural courses taken in 2-year colleges outside the state will transfer to another state university with fewer restrictions than will credit earned in the same state. Few junior and community college teachers are required to meet any state certification standards. State universities assume that instructors hold masters degrees in the subjects taught. More than half the universities surveyed share course material with junior and community colleges, but only on a request basis. Fifty-five per cent of the Deans of Resident Instruction feel that students experience little or no difficulty in transferring from a 2-year college to a 4-year college. Recommendations based on the above findings are listed. (CA)
